"Early in the invasion there was a photograph published on the front page of British newspapers of Tony Blair kissing the cheek of a little Iraqi boy. ‘A grateful child,’ said the caption. A few days later there was a story and photograph, on an inside page, of another four-year-old boy with no arms. His family had been blown up by a missile. He was the only survivor. ‘When do I get my arms back?’ he asked. The story was dropped. Well, Tony Blair wasn’t holding him in his arms, nor the body of any other mutilated child, nor the body of any bloody corpse. Blood is dirty. It dirties your shirt and tie when you’re making a sincere speech on television." Harold Pinter: Art, Truth & Politics Nobel Lecture December 7, 2005

The US 'has exercised a clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good' - Harold Pinter
I believe that despite the enormous odds which exist, unflinching, unswerving, fierce intellectual determination, as citizens, to define the real truth of our lives and our societies is a crucial obligation which devolves upon us all. It is in fact mandatory. If such a determination is not embodied in our political vision we have no hope of restoring what is so nearly lost to us - the dignity of man. --Harold Pinter, Nobel Lecture 2005
Sir Arthur John Gielgud, OM, CH (/ˈɡiːlɡʊd/; 14 April 1904 – 21 May 2000), was an English actor and theatre director whose career spanned eight decades. The Independent described him as one of a great trinity of actors, together with Ralph Richardson and Laurence Olivier, who dominated the British stage for much of the 20th century.[1] He was a member of the Terry family theatrical dynasty and gained his first paid acting work as a junior member of his cousin Phyllis Neilson-Terry's company in 1922. After study at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art he worked in repertory theatre and in the West End before establishing himself at the Old Vic as an exponent of Shakespeare in 1929–31. During the 1930s Gielgud was a stage star in the West End and on Broadway, appearing in new works and classics. He began a parallel career as a director, and set up his own company at the Queen's Theatre, London. He was regarded by many as the finest Hamlet of his era, and was also known in high comedy roles such as Joh ...

Today is the birthday of Irish avant-garde playwwright and poet, Samuel Barclay Beckett. Known for penning tragicomic works like "Waiting for Godot" and "Endgame," the renown writer would turn 107 years old if he were still alive today. Widely recognized as one of the most influential authors of the 20th century, the Dublin-born Beckett was famous for his bleak portrayals of humanity. Channeling compatriot James Joyce, his stories were often filled with black comedy and gallows humor and represented an open attack on the then-popular realist tradition. Throwing conventional plot lines and restricted time sequences to the wind, his experimental writing style paved the way for writers like Vaclav Havel, Tom Stoppard and Harold Pinter.

Throwback Thursday. When I was growing up in Mississippi I hated my lips. I was teased on the school bus mercilessly for having "n-word lips" although back in Mississippi in the 1960s the real term was used instead of "n-word." The nickname stuck and I was often called "n- r lips" when I wasn't being labeled a "sissy." I remember sitting on that school bus as a seven year old and wondering if there were a surgical procedure for making my lips smaller as I had heard on television that one could get a nose job. It wasn't until I moved my sissy self to New York City when I was 19 that I realized that my lips were actually one of my best features. It had never dawned on me before. Indeed, my first Christmas Eve ever spent away from home was spent with my first mentor in New York, Henry Geldzahler, taking me to Sardi's for a Christmas Eve dinner and then to see Harold Pinter's Betrayal on Broadway starring Blythe Danner and Raul Julia and Roy Scheider. After the play, we went to a dive *** bar on Eighth ...

Hey look! It's the playwright! Bjarni Jónsson was born in 1966 in Akranes, on the west coast of Iceland. After working as a seaman, a construction worker and a journalist he moved to Munich where he finished a master's degree in theatre studies in 1992. He has frequently worked as a dramaturg and a director of radio drama, and has translated numerous plays and novels by authors such as Harold Pinter, Mark Ravenhill, Neil LaBute, David Gieselmann, Marius von Mayenburg, Thomas Bernhard, Roddy Doyle, Henrik Ibsen, George Tabori, Tennessee Williams, Günter Grass and Hertha Mueller. Bjarni Jónsson is co-founder and associate artistic director of the LÓKAL Theatre Festival Reykjavík, an annual event that brings new theatre to the Icelandic audience and connects Icelandic theatremakers with the international scene.
I've never wanted to see much more of Harold Pinter than a bit here or there, until last night, watching Derek Jacobi and Michael Gambon brilliantly perform a scene from "No Man's Land," during the 50th anniversary celebration of Britain's National Theatre that PBS aired as part of their Great Performances series. Benedict Cumberbatch did a great job with the coin-tossing scene from "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead," as well. Unfortunately I had to stop there. Fortunately it's still on the DVR for later. :) The only thing better would be a complete performance of Rosencrantz.

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz play Betrayal takes $17.5m in 14 weeks Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz's revival of Betrayal has taken $17.5 million (£10.7m) in just 14 weeks. The new Broadway production of Harold Pinter's classic play was met with mixed reviews but was hugely popular due to the presence of the married actors. Betrayal opened on October 1, before closing on Sunday (January 5). Top-price tickets went for $275 (£167) and $499 (£304). Also starring Rafe Spall, the play became Broadway's second most successful production in 2013. Nora Ephron's play Lucky Guy, starring Tom Hanks, topped the list with takings of just under $23m (£14m). Directed by Mike Nichols, Betrayal tells the story of a wife who has an affair with her husband's best friend. It also set the record for highest-grossing non-musical in a single week in Broadway history over the Christmas period, earning $1.44m (£0.8m) for the week ending December 29. Pinter's 1978 play was inspired by his affair with BBC television presenter J ...
Found myself alphabetizing my books yesterday. Interesting things happened*, Harold Pinter's Birthday Party ended up beside Helen Pidd's Bicycle and Ned Boulting's On the Road Bike is squeezed up against Eric Bulson's Novels, Maps, Modernity. It was a slow day. That is all. *what ever floats your boat.
The star system might be waning in Hollywood, but not when those stars take to the Broadway stage. The Mike Nichols-directed revival of the Harold Pinter play Betrayal, which stars Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Rafe Spall, just set a new Broadway box office record when it grossed $1.44 million...
Betrayal: Ghastly and dull. Tired and beaten up story of marital infidelity, (not surprising as it's a rehash of 1978 Harold Pinter play) saved only from entertainment flatline by the delicious Daniel Craig, and the standup performance of Rafe Spall ... Feeling a little betrayed myself!!

'The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there.' You'll know that of course from L P Hartley's wonderful novel, the Go-Between, and equally probably from the superb film adaptation by Harold Pinter and Joseph Losey . (and which 13-year-old boy wouldn't have lost his heart and sacrificed all for Julie Christie?) Anyway I've been thinking about that statement a bit recently? Is it true? What does it mean? Do they really do things differently elsewhere and at other points in time? What's set this off has been a dabbling in matters historical. First of all seeing the touring British Museum exhibition about the Roman Empire (at the Bristol Museum). What struck me was not how different the Romans were in so many things but how similar they were to us. Now that may well have been in part a result of the selection of the objects on view and the interpretation given to them in the accompanying text. But the most striking object was a perfectly preserved child's sock from Turkey (I think), knitted ...

Harold Pinter, actor, playwright and screenplay penman is often misunderstood… exactly one of his raison neurs. Pinter, “Once many years ago, I found myself engaged uneasily in a public discussion on theatre. Someone asked me what my work was about. I replied with no thought at all and merely to frustrate this line of enquiry: ‘the weasel under the cocktail cabinet.’ This was a great mistake. Over the years I have seen that remark quoted in a number of learned columns. It has now seemingly acquired a profound significance, and is seen to be a highly relevant and meaningful observation about my own work. But for me the remark meant precisely nothing.” As an actor, director and playwright, I value the so-called Pinter-pause, because it connotes(for me) the expression in the silent moments between the spoken dialogue on stage… often where much is ‘said’… expressed without words… not the same as Marcel Marceau’s moving expressions, but something and nothing else. Those unfamiliar ...

Just seen at the Harold Pinter. Fabulous production. Great cast. Tom Stoppard also enjoying the show
The programme was marvellous tonight. Included scenes from wide range of productions from Ayckbourn to Shakespeare. Highlights were Judi Dench singing Send In The Clowns, Roger Allam reciting a speech from Copenhagen + Sit Down You're Rocking The Boat from Guys And Dolls. Disappointed there wasn't any Pinter though. Surely a Harold Pinter play must have been performed at The National at some point?
Went to see Harold Pinter play MOJO - Jez Butterworth's version (modernised) Really interesting play and great cast - Rupert Grint, Ben Wishaw, Colin Morgan (Merlin), Brendan Coyle (Mr Bates) and Daniel Mays. Well acted and I couldn't believe how fast the play passed by!
Just saw No Man's Land of Harold Pinter with my favs Ian McKellan and Patrick Stewart
If you ever need any music to read Harold Pinter plays too, well, this is it:
Really would like to fly to New York to see Rachel Weisz, Daniel Craig and Rafe Spall in Betrayal by Harold Pinter. Harrowing.
Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz enjoyed their opening night for Harold Pinter's Betrayal on Sunday, in front of a star-studded audience.
"Betrayal," Harold Pinter's drama about marital infidelity starring James Bond actor Daniel Craig and his real-life wife Rachel Weisz, is one of the hottest plays on Broadway and critics said on Mo...
Opening tonight is Harold Pinter's play "Betrayal" which tells the story of Emma (Rachel Weisz), married to Robert (Daniel Craig), who has long had an affair with Robert's best friend Jerry (Rafe Spall). This uniquely-structured play runs backwards through time.

Rehearsals for the Y11 play have begun - 'Shorts' is a series of short plays by Samuel Beckett and Harold Pinter
Is it sad that when I see updates for the upcoming production of NO MAN'S LAND, I keep getting excited, thinking that Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart are going to be in the adaptation of the great Batman story arc from the 90s? *** Harold Pinter!
Just watched Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz on Broadway in Betrayal. Written by Harold Pinter & directed by Mike Nichols. Bunch…
Modesty, that rare virtue, has this year alighted upon the Nobel prizes. Physicist Peter Higgs evaporated into a Highland walking tour to evade media attention, then Alice Munro, the 82-year-old doyenne of the short story, outdid him – by being simply unaware that there was a certain literature prize in the offing. "Mom, you won," said one of her daughters, waking her up with the news. "I was kind of dazed about what I had won," Munro told the Canadian broadcaster CBC in a brief and rare interview. "I had no idea of it. I don't think I knew I was even on a list until maybe yesterday." Munro is the second Canadian-born writer to win be awarded the Nobel prize for literature – after Saul Bellow – and the 13th woman. "Can this be possible?" she asked. "Really? It seems dreadful there's only 13 of us." With her acceptance of the 8m Swedish krona (£775,000) prize she joins a rollcall of 110 past winners including Thomas Mann, Harold Pinter, Toni Morrison, Doris Lessing, Albert Camus and Ernest Hemingway ...
Pause It would be Harold Pinter's eighty-third birthday: wrote a lot of things I don't like. But it's his birthday, so let's have what primary teachers call 'three stars and a wish': * '...You know, believe it or not, you've got a funny kind of resemblance to a bloke I once knew in Shoreditch. Actually he lived in Aldgate. I was staying with a cousin in Camden Town. This chap, he used to have a pitch in Finsbury Park, just by the bus depot. When I got to know him I found out he was brought up in Putney. That didn't make any difference to me. I know quite a few people who were born in Putney. Even if they weren't born in Putney they were born in Fulham. The only trouble was, he wasn't born in Putney, he was only brought up in Putney. In turned out he was born in the Caledonian Road, just before you get to the Nag's Head. His old mum was still living at the Angel. All the buses passed right by the door. She could get a 38, 581, 30 or 38A, take her down the Essex Road to Dalston Junction in next to no time. ...
